Lake Placid (1999) – Film Review

There’s a really big crocodile in a lake. There’s a city-dwelling scientist (Bridget Fonda), a folksy cop (Bill Pullman) and an eccentric millionaire (Oliver Platt).  And a strange lakeside resident (Betty White). And there’s your plot.

I thought this would be terrible, but it’s awesome. I would wear almost every line from Bridget Fonda on a t-shirt. And Pullman… look, I’ve always had a soft spot for those smiling eyes. But it’s really great, heaps of fun, plus a super-ridiculously big crocodile. What more could you want?
